COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Melanie Balcomb discovered quickly after her tenure as Vanderbilts womens basketball coach ended that she needed to get back into the game -- and fast.I found out early in the process that Im not a stay-at-home mom, said Balcomb, the 53-year-old mother of two preschoolers. I started thinking about what I could do, what I should do to stay relevant.Three months since her dismissal after 14 seasons at Vanderbilt, Balcomb joined coach Dawn Staleys program at South Carolina as an offensive, analytics consultant. The position, director of coaching offensive analytics, is for one season.Well see how it goes after that, Balcomb said Monday.Balcomb felt her relationship with Vanderbilt fading the past couple of seasons. She had led the Commodores to 12 straight NCAA Tournament appearances since taking that job in 2002-03 before missing the field the past two years. Her only three losing marks in the Southeastern Conference came the past three seasons. Balcomb did not want to get into details about her dismissal, saying only: It was time.She wasnt sure what direction to take. She wanted to be home more for 5-year-old son Quincy and 4-year-old daughter Aleya and did not want the traveling another coaching position, head or assistant, might mean with recruiting.She considered TV -- Im pretty candid about stuff, she said -- with some colleagues and friends telling Balcomb she could be the Charles Barkley of the womens game if she stepped in as a game or studio analyst.Balcomb believes there will be time for that later.Almost as soon as she lost her job, Balcomb got offers to join programs as a consultant. Minnesota asked if shed consider consulting on defense, but that side of the game didnt excite her. It was offense where she wanted to impact the game and found a like-minded coach in Staley, who remodeled the point guard position during her Hall-of-Fame playing career.For Staley, hiring Balcomb was a no-brainer after competing against her as coaching rivals both in the Atlantic 10 coaching rivals for two years (Balcomb at Xavier, Staley at Temple) and then for the last eight seasons in the SEC.There is always room to grow professionally, Staley said.Balcomb believes that, too. She expects to grow from her time around Staley, assistants Lisa Boyer, Nikki McCray-Penson and Fred Chmiel.Balcombs new job will keep her at home during the season, something she wanted.What wont change is Balcombs instincts. She said she wont step on any toes, yet understands there will be moments shell want to frantically blow a whistle to stop practice or shout out instructions during a game when something breaks down -- and must restrain herself.Balcomb wont coach on the floor during games and is unsure if shes allowed a spot on the bench this fall. Still, shes is excited about whats ahead and seeing if her time at South Carolina can be a templet for other long-term coaches seeking to stay in the game.Everybody said `Whats next? Whats your next chapter? said Balcomb, whod like to be a head coach again. I dont think I couldve planned this better. Authentic Sammy Sosa Jersey . It says Pocklingtons lawyer filed the appeal Friday in a California court.

Authentic Steve Cishek Jersey . Murray beat Sam Querrey 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-3 to clinch Britains opening-round victory against the United States on Sunday at Petco Park. "Im proud of the way Im playing just now, because I had to do a lot of work to get back to where I want to be," Murray said after celebrating with his teammates on the red clay court in a temporary stadium in left field of the downtown home of baseballs San Diego Padres. Authentic Joe Maddon Jersey . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. LONDON -- Serena Williams has won so many Grand Slam matches that shes lost count.Then again, as she noted Sunday, its her losses that get a lot more attention nowadays.Looking much more ready for Week 2 at Wimbledon than she did in her previous outing, Williams joined Martina Navratilova as the only women with 300 victories at major tournaments in the Open era by overwhelming Annika Beck 6-3, 6-0 in 51 minutes to get to the fourth round.Every time I step out on the court, if I dont win, its major national news, Williams said a day after her counterpart in the mens draw, No. 1 and defending champion Novak Djokovic, was ousted. But if I do win, its just like a small tag in the corner.Pushed to three sets her last time out, Williams was about as dominant as can be against her 43rd-ranked German opponent. Nearly perfect, even.Williams won the last 17 points she served. She won 24 of the last 28 points overall. She accumulated 25 winners to two for Beck.Afterward, the six-time Wimbledon champion was asked whether she knew she had reached a milestone by getting her 300th Grand Slam match win, breaking a tie with Chris Evert for second place behind Navratilovas total of 306.No. Was it? Cool. Oh, nice, the 34-year-old American said with a laugh. I had no idea. Thats awesome, right? Thats good, right?Shes now 300-42, an .877 winning percentage, and will go for No. 301 right away: All 16 mens and womens fourth-round matches are scheduled for Monday, when Williams faces two-time major champion Svetlana Kuznetsova.Yes, thanks to sun on Sunday, the tournament is all caught up after persistent rain left a backlog of matches. This was only the fourth time since The Championships, as theyre called around these parts, began 139 years ago that matches were played on the middle Sunday.On the other three occasions -- 1991, 1997, 2004 -- fans lined up overnight to buy tickets that normally are so difficult, and expensive, to come by, creating a loud festival of flag-waving, face-painted folks thrilled to be on-site for once. This time, seats could only be purchased online, and there was a far-less-vibrant vibe than in the past on what was known as Peoples Sunday.I thought it would feel really different, Williams said, asked to compare this day with an averagee one at the grass-court Grand Slam, but it didnt feel really different.ddddddddddddIf anything, this middle Sunday was oddly subdued. Silent, even. Arenas were filled with rows and rows of unclaimed green chairs. Spectators applauded politely, if at all. Walkways around the grounds were easy to traverse.Strange feeling, a little bit, said No. 7 Richard Gasquet, who helped give France four men in the round of 16 at Wimbledon for the first time since 1929, because ... I dont see many people around.His next opponent is another member of that rare quartet, No. 12 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who erased a two-set deficit, then saved a match point, en route to edging No. 18 John Isner of the United States 19-17 in a fifth set that lasted more than 2 hours all by itself.Its good to be alive, said Tsonga, now 6-0 in five-setters at the All England Club.They played three sets before being halted because of darkness Saturday night and finished Sunday.In other mens matches, No. 32 Lucas Pouille of France got past 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro 6-7 (4), 7-6 (6), 7-5, 6-1; 2010 Wimbledon runner-up Tomas Berdych defeated 19-year-old Alexander Zverev 6-3, 6-4, 4-6, 6-1; No. 15 Nick Kyrgios eliminated No. 22 Feliciano Lopez 6-3, 6-7 (2), 6-3, 6-4 to set up a showdown against his pal Andy Murray, who is seeded No. 2 and won the 2013 title; and Jiri Vesely defeated No. 31 Joao Sousa 6-2, 6-2, 7-5.The 13th-seeded Kuznetsova advanced with a 6-7 (1), 6-2, 8-6 victory over No. 18 Sloane Stephens. Other womens winners included No. 21 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Elena Vesnina and Ekaterina Makarova. The woman who ended Williams bid for a calendar-year Grand Slam in the U.S. Open semifinals last September, Roberta Vinci, failed to put up much of a challenge in a 6-3, 6-4 loss to No. 27 CoCo Vandeweghe.Vandeweghe won 24 of 28 first-serve points and 14 of 17 points when she went to the net, improving to 11-1 on grass this season.Past month or almost two months, said Vandeweghe, a 2015 Wimbledon quarterfinalist, Ive been doing a good job of rising to the occasion.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Hoodies Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Discount Jerseys ' ' '
